1997’s The Trollish Mirror is the debut EP from Swedish black/death outfit Amsvartner, and was released when the band members were still teenagers. Apparently the band started out with a more black metal style, but most of what you hear on The Trollish Mirror is Gothenburg-style melodic (well, somewhat melodic) death metal. It’s very fast, very aggressive and very harsh, but there are also some melodic and atmospheric elements.

Black metal fans expecting more of Amsvartner’s demo-era sound are probably going to be disappointed with The Trollish Mirror, as only the lousy production job and some of the lyrical content point to the black metal genre. And as death metal releases go, this isn’t terrible, but it’s not anything special either. Pick it up out of curiosity if you see it in a dollar bin, but don’t go hunting for it.
